Plain old chicken hawks Bro. Wait for a used set to come up and jump on them. Not the fancy, schmancy ones. Just the base model. They work great.

Troll the WERA, CCS, NESBA forums.

Chickenhawks, period. Used on the boards this winter.

Tirebakers. Get them here

In reality at this point I don't care as much. At one time they were made by fellow racer and friend Brian Baker in MIlwaukee. He recently sold out to Eric Wood. But I have 2 sets and both are A++++

I use the DMP's. They're awesome. The set I have has a digital temp set, so I can set them to whatever temp. The build quality seems on par w/ the chickenhawks. Best part is that they only draw 1000w, so you don't need as big a generator.

I was looking at the tyrsox. They have those goofy housings that you have put around them to keep the tires warm. I've heard they are a pain. I've also hear that some people have overheating issues.

I also read that some of the newer models have a built in thermostat, but I don't know if thats the case. Anyone have any details? The price is certainly right.

Tyr Sox are the biggest pain in the ass. Steer clear of them.

Yes, Tyr Sox do suck stay away from those. I will second Garth with the Tire Bakers I have had a set for 3 years. The two things that sold me on the Tire Bakers were they only take 800w per set and they have the most insulation of any warmer I have seen. This is real nice on those real cool mornings plus if you just want to hold some heat in your tires for a short time with out turning them on.
